How to Build a Better Booty

Have you ever turned around in front of a full-length mirror and wished your rear view was a little rounder? Firm, lifted derriéres are all the rage right now, thanks in no small part to the booty-shaking attributes of stars like JLo and Nicki Minaj.

There are many ways to boost your behind, so we’ve gathered up some tips for a great butt that can help you look better in jeans, bodacious in bathing suits, and bootylicious everywhere you go.

Show Off What You’ve Got

A pair of high waisted shorts on a hot summer day can make your behind look great from every angle—and sporting short-shorts is a surefire way to show off your curves. When the sun goes down and the air cools, add a pair of high heels to high waisted jeans for a runway-ready outfit. Your butt will look tight and firm as you strut down the sidewalk.

Tan Your Behind Without UV Rays

An evenly tanned behind can looked more toned at the beach, especially when you wear a bikini. Self-tanning sprays and lotions are a great way to add some color without exposing your skin to harmful UV rays.

Work It, Girl

Next time you’re at the gym, add some glute exercises to your routine. Squats, toe taps, and kickbacks can all add some extra roundness to your rear. Take the stairs or seek out hills to add a booty-boosting workout to daily life. If you give your behind some attention every day, you’ll see subtle results over time.

Consider a Brazilian Butt Lift for Long-Term Results

If you’re looking to make a long-term change, there is a way to achieve a permanently rounder bottom: transferring fat from common trouble spots to the buttocks. This buttock enhancement procedure is called a Brazilian butt lift (BBL), and it’s growing in popularity every year. In fact, the number of Brazilian butt lifts doubled in 2014, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

This alternative to butt implants uses your own living tissue to create a rounder, fuller behind. A highly skilled, board certified plastic surgeon can remove excess fat from your abdomen, thighs, or flanks; cleanse it through a specialized purification system; and inject it into the buttocks to add lift and shape. Your own fat is an ideal natural substance to plump up your buttocks, as there are no foreign objects or substances being added to your body and your tissue will integrate in a natural, long-lasting way.

Fat transfer to the buttocks eliminates common issues with implants, such as scars, lumpiness, and implant outlines. Instead, your butt will look smoother, firmer, and perkier from every angle.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift?

While a BBL can provide beautiful results for the right patient, it may not be the best option for everyone. For the procedure to provide dramatic improvement, patients must have enough excess fat for transfer.

The purification process yields only 30% of the fat initially removed, and you will need at least 400 cc injected into each buttocks to see a noticeable difference in size and shape. Because of this, very slim patients with little body fat may not be ideal candidates.

Find a Qualified BBL Surgeon

If you think that a Brazilian butt lift might be right for you, the first step is to find a qualified surgeon that specializes in the procedure.
